DAN network exhibitions


March exhibitions by DAN members

A popular local restaurant, the Park’s Café (4 Victoria Square), is hosting an exhibition of watercolours by Chris Walker. Chris is an amateur artist who took up painting when she retired. She is very skilled watercolourist, but she uses a range of media including graphite, coloured pencils and pastel. The watercolours at this exhibition show wide range of subjects – animals and plants, birds, landscapes and architectural landmarks. Her exhibition is on until the end of March. 

3rd International Mail Art exhibition in Droitwich

LONG LIVE THE ART!
CALL FOR MAIL ART ARTIST TO CELEBRATE THE ART.

The ART has changed its styles, significance and meaning so many times throughout the history, but it has always been a constant part of humanity and the lives of people. Everybody enjoys the ART – commons and royals, children and adults, blue collars and white collars – the art should not know any borders, limits or restrictions. The ART is capable to fit into any shape and form, to fulfil any expectation, to adapt to be understandable to all and to be enigmatic and mysterious. The ART has a duty to enhance the reality, to see the beauty, to recognise diversity, to provoke our thoughts, to call for a rebellion, to punch and shake us.

DAN exhibition venues in 2017

Droitwich Arts Network members have an opportunity to exhibit their works in several venues across the town. Individual members are invited to organise their solo exhibitions, but numerous groups (members of the network) are welcome to display artworks of selected members. 

Rosie Philpott at Park’s Café

Rosie Philpott, a local artist known for her ‘wonky’ paintings, has recently donned the walls of a local café with her artwork. The exhibition will be held at Park’s Café in Droitwich throughout the month of February, where Rosie has both prints and originals on display. Her paintings of local views, such as “Wonky Droitwich”, have proven extremely popular with their local characters and quirky style.

Rosie said: “I enjoy working in watercolour and fine line pen, exaggerating the scenes I see around me. It is rare that I get a chance to show my originals as they are usually already spoken for so it’s exciting that I get to show to a wider public.”

The exhibition is a scheme devised by the Droitwich Arts Network, where members can display their work for free at local venues. A different artist is given a chance to display their work each month.
